Mango Banana Spinach Smoothie

In my efforts to incorporate more green smoothies into our diet, I keep experimenting and came up with a good combination. It was filling and delicious, chock full of great nutrients! I drank the whole batch but it was definitely big enough for two people… I just hoarded it for myself instead… 🙂

Spinach Blueberry Almond Smoothie

Here is the recipe for the green smoothie we had with our dinner tonight. This also rates as a 10 out of 10 on the husband rating scale. We are trying to work more green smoothies into our diet… a great way to get some spinach, kale, etc. into the boys without them protesting! I highly recommend this one!

*I didn’t get a picture – didn’t realize this smoothie would be a 10 until we had finished it all!  So, next time I will snap a shot of it.  🙂

Recipe adapted from The Musician, Who Cooks

1 c. almond milk (unsweetened)
2 Tbsp. creamy almond butter, preferably raw
1 medium banana, frozen and cut into slices
1 c. frozen blueberries
3 c. spinach (tightly packed)

Put all ingredients in order listed into a blender. Blend on high speed until ingredients are smooth and to your desired consistency. Enjoy!

Husband Rating: 10 out of 10

Food for thought: I saw a great idea for prepping smoothies ahead of time for quicker blending in the morning.  Place all of the fruit and veggie ingredients into a freezer bag.  On the front of the bag, label the name of the smoothie and how much almond milk and almond butter to add (or whatever wet ingredients need to be added).  Stick the bags in the freezer for quick, ready-to-go smoothie packets!
